I finished my spring planting yesterday, it took all of 15 minutes or so. I have added to my tiny balcony a raised planter box that's about 3 feet long. Big enough, I think for some herbs and a few vegetables. Our spring so far has been cold and cloudy and not very spring-like, but yesterday and today have been warm and sunny.
I now have some parsley and chives planted at one end of my garden, and some salad greens and onions at the other. The rows are about a foot long. We'll see what happens. The balcony faces East and gets full sun until about 2 or 3 pm each day. Last summer I planted one tomato plant in a planter made from half a wine barrel. This summer I'm expanding my garden.
And just the right size. I think the weeding will be manageable!
